Abstract
This paper tells the story about the development of Quantitative Risk Assessment, how it was concep- tualized in the early 1970s in the nuclear industry, how it was employed within the chemical industry soon after, and what its status is today. The different purposes of QRA are explained, and we elaborate on one of the purposes, that is, Land-Use Planning. The role of Professor Ben Ale, as a process safety pioneer, is discussed throughout the history. We fi nally provide some on-going state-of-the-art research and projects to further improve QRA approaches, and we sketch the future of QRA and its relation with LUP
